They used to be good deals but not so much anymore...IMHO. Back in the day, maybe 01-03, I picked up some good values like Ballista-Molinas for $99 or FR-8s for $45, they would also have different mil-surps that were $20 or less....but they've raised the prices over the years so that it's not that good of a deal unless you're just trying to build a parts inventory....some people disagree though.....

They are hit and miss. I have bought three. One was great and two were not so great. It's luck of the draw. As supplies have dwindled, you more likely to get a hard case now.
